My Travels: DoubleTree Atlanta Northlake

My 4th stop in moving from Vermont to Texas was in Atlanta. (My 3rd stop was spent with family in South Carolina.) While I’ve technically been at the airport here, I’ve never properly explored the city of Atlanta.

Two big figures in Gay Culture who call Atlanta Home are Violet Chachki and Johnny Rapid. Man, what a dream it would have been to meet Johnny Rapid. These days he’s planning to open his own auto repair shop, and perhaps I’ll take my car to him someday.

Once again, I tried to take a photo similar to the promotional image of the time.
It’s funny how I was there on the last week before the hotel was set to begin a multi-million dollar renovation.

The restaurant in this particular DoubleTree was one of three Marlow’s Taverns. (Click the photos below for their website)

My first drink after driving in Atlanta: The “Blueberry Buck”
Dinner was a French Dip.
And topped off with a “New Fashioned”
Welcome to the top floor!
King bedroom.
TV, Chest of Drawers, and desk.
The perks of Hilton Honors.
I was impressed that this DoubleTree offered so many bathroom amenities.
I sat on the other side of this waterfall for breakfast.

While my time in Atlanta proved to be uneventful, it was ok. I had been traveling across the country for 4 days at that point and the biggest moment was still yet to come.

I’ll be back again to truly see Atlanta again someday!
